The most important battle you face is the battle for your mind, will, and emotions. Why? Because it greatly determines how much of God and his kingdom you will experience while you’re on earth. The thoughts we entertain, the words we speak, and the choices we make shape and influence not only our reality, but all of creation.
The enemy loves to highlight our temporary challenges; poke at our feelings and stir up fear, frustration, doubt, and self-pity; and get us mired in murmuring and complaining.
Yet the Bible shows us that all of heaven is available to us right now.
In these pages you will discover the secret of Colossians: the incredible power of Christ in you. When you learn how to access his ever-present power and goodness, feelings and fears will no longer control you. You
will go from being overwhelmed to being an overcomer.
Heaven is only a decision away. How will you choose?
Not many books rock my world, but this one has. I am so much more aware of my thoughts and feelings and questioning why I am reacting the way I do. Why am offended? Why am I irritated? What good does it do?
I have the power to choose how I react and feel, but I am giving my circumstances power and they really have none.
As I read this book I often found myself in tears as God revealed new truths to me.
Here are a couple of quotes from the book and reached out and grabbed my heart:
“I was irritated because I was choosing to be irritated. I was feeling powerless because I was not exercising power over myself.”
“God shakes what can be shaken, so that His unshakable Kingdom that He has given you in its fullness can be revealed not just to you, but for you.”
“God’s promise to you is that He will shake what can be shaken so that it can be replaced with something greater, more glorious and divinely certain.”
